Even at low volumes, the Sontronics HALO will capture your amp's tone and character. Whether you're performing rock, heavy metal, or even pop music, the HALO microphone will ensure your guitar sounds great.

HALO is based on the Sontronics STC-80, a handheld dynamic microphone that gives stunning results on vocals, but has also been increasingly used to great effect on guitar amps for live and studio work. The HALO takes the same capsule, enhances it slightly to capture the exact frequencies of your guitar amp, and the result is all the bite, crunch and presence you could wish for without need to lay a finger on the EQ.
HALO is yet another of Sontronics founder and mic designer Trevor Coley's stunning vintage-inspired creations, reminiscent of the SATURN multi-pattern condenser mic. "As a guitarist myself," Coley explains, "I've always wanted to give other guitar players something that looks a lot more inspiring than a regular handheld dynamic to put in front of their amps and HALO is exactly that. It looks and sounds like no other guitar mic out there!"
"Our pair of Halos have been in constant use. These mics accurately recreate all frequencies meaning little to no additional EQ is required to give a rich tone. Visually and sonically these are all-round fantastic microphones!"
